Tsunanori Mido

SaGa: Emerald Beyond (SaGa: EB) - Tsunanori Mido Route

Tsunanori Mido Protagonist Features
  • All starting party members in Mido’s route are Kugutsu-race characters.

Most of the party members you start with on Mido’s route belong to the Kugutsu race.

Because of this, it may be hard to clear some of the early encounters during the scenario.

The biggest advantage when choosing to start with Mido, however, are the numerous Spirit Battles that occur during his story route. You have a high chance of obtaining rare equipment by taking down Sinister Spirits that appear in events exclusive to Mido’s route. Because of this, choose Mido if you want to farm for powerful gear during your first playthrough.

As you progresses through the Mido’s story route and collect more Souls for Kugutsu, battles will eventually become manageable later on.
